> since OpenID uses a URL as an identifier, then it can be used to track you just as easily.

No so.

Yes, it uses a URL. But as of version 2 a provider can provide the same login URL for all users. Google's implementation does this. I would not use any OpenID provider that didn't do it, which among other things means I wouldn't use any provider who only implements version 1.
